Windows 10 Sign-In

One of the new features on Windows 10 Insider preview build 10547 is the ability to remove the Windows background picture on the sign-in screen. Removing the picture is as easy as flipping a switch in the settings. If you need guidance, we'll show you how to do it.

1. Go to Settings (keyboard shortcut: Windows + I) > Personalization > Lock screen

2. Scroll down and turn off the option, "Show Windows background picture on the sign-in screen."

That's it! No, really… that's all you need to do. Instead of the default black and blue Windows 10 wallpaper on the sign-in screen, you'll see the solid color matching your theme. What would be even more awesome is if we have a built-in option to replace the image instead of just removing it. Hopefully, Microsoft will add that option in a future update.
